Well said, here in Germany companies are really trying to learn this startup mentality by going to the source, Universities. Just last week our startup (or beginning of a startup, since we are only two students currently)had one week visitation from Deutsche Bahn (the German train company).

During this week they followed how we operate and go with our day to day business in order to adapt some startup practices. We in turn also got a lot out of it, namely learning to establish some sort of structure in to all the chaos that is our startup :D.
